What Is Emergency Room Malpractice?

Just because you were treated in an emergency room and had a bad outcome does not mean that your health care provider committed malpractice. Sometimes doctors do everything they are supposed to do and the patient still suffers a negative outcome. To have a case, there must be substantial injury and evidence that physicians, nurses or emergency room staff deviated from the accepted standard of care.

Examples of emergency room malpractice include:

  • Failure to diagnose heart attack
  • Failure to properly insert or monitor breathing tubes
  • Failure to order proper tests for diagnosis of illness or injury
  • Discharging a patient while he or she still needs medical attention
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to obtain a medical history

If you or someone you love has been injured due to an emergency room error, the Clinton medical negligence attorneys at Cantrell, Goodge & Associates can help.
